Wonder Woman (Diana Prince, or simply Princess Diana) is an Amazonian superheroine that resides in the DC Universe. One of the many characters chosen to appear in the crossover game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, she is one of the most well-known and popular of DC's female superheroes. She hails from the island of Themyscira on Earth, where she controls an army of Amazon warriors. With her status as a princess of a realm separate from other governments and kingdoms of Earth, her counterpart for the crossover game is the Edenian princess Kitana.
About Wonder WomanEdit
Centuries ago, the Amazons, a proud and fierce race of warrior women, led by Queen Hippolyta, battled Ares, the God of War, and his army. During the battle, Hippolyta beheaded her son, Thrax, whom Ares forcibly conceived with her, and then defeated the God of War himself. Zeus prevented her from killing Ares. Instead, Hera bound his powers with magic bracers so that he was deprived of his ability to draw power from the aura of violence and death he could instigate, and only another god could release him.
In compensation, the Amazons were granted the island of Themyscira, where they could be eternally youthful and isolated from Man in the course of their duty of holding Ares prisoner for all eternity. Later, Hippolyta was granted a daughter, Princess Diana, whom she shaped from the sand of the sea shore and gave life with her own blood.
Over a millennium later, an American fighter pilot, Steve Trevor, is shot down and crash-lands on the island, where he soon runs afoul of the Amazon population. Hippolyta decides he should be returned home. Diana volunteers, but is assigned to guard Ares's cell instead since her mother argues that she has not enough experience in dealing with the dangers of the outside world. Diana defies her mother and, her face hidden by a helmet and her guard duty covered by her bookish but kind-hearted Amazon sister Alexa, wins the right to take Trevor back to his home.
Donning the colors of Trevor's home nation as a sign of respect, Diana began to live among the humans of Man's World, and assumed the role of Wonder Woman to combat the great evils that would rise across the world.
During the DCU Campaign she first becomes playable during the third chapter which begins with her fighting and defeating Shang Tsung, then defeating Sub-Zero, Kitana, Captain Marvel (Under the influence of Rage), and being defeated by Jax and Scorpion. During the final chapter she assists the rest of the DC Heroes and villains in facing the Mortal Kombat Warriors after both Raiden and Superman defeat Dark Kahn she with the rest of the DCU characters watch over the tower to see Shao Kahn instead of Darkseid to see the both have switched places with each other.
In her ending, after defeating Dark Kahn, Wonder Woman returns to Themyscira and finds some strange relics scattered across the island (two of the relics she found resembled Ashrah's Kriss and Amulet of Shinnok). Equipping herself with these weapons, her powers were enhanced beyond what the gods had given her. She and her Amazons would now be an unstoppable as they fought for the preservation of Earth. The shield she carries in her ending also looks like the design logo for Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance.
- MK vs DCU: "Daughter of Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons, Princess Diana sprung from the mists of Greek mythology. She left the female-only island of Themyscira to travel to "Man's World" as an emissary of peace. Gifted with super-strength and invulnerability, her main tool in crime-fighting is her golden Lasso of Truth. Unbreakable, it forces all captured by it to tell the truth."
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Upon being given life by the gods of Olympus, Diana recieved multiple powers from a select few of them:
- Demeter, the goddess of agriculture, granted her super strength on par with Superman, along with superhuman endurance and durability, and a regenerative healing process.
- Heremes, the god of thieves, gave her the ability to move and fly faster than sound, along with superhuman agility and reflexes.
- Athena, the goddess of wisdom, bestowed immense intellect, and the power of omnilinguism, the ability to speak and understand any language in existence.
- Artemis, the Moon goddess of the hunt, gave her enhanced vision and hearing, and an empathic link with the animal kingdom.
- Hestia, the goddess of homes, made her one with fire, rendering her immune to flames of both normal and paranormal origin.
- Aphrodite, the goddess of love, gave her both beauty surpassing her own, and an equally loving heart to go with it.
However, Wonder Woman will lose her powers if a man welds or binds her braclets together.
